Chris de Burgh encouraged Rosanna Davison to pose nude for Playboy... it's The Dredge

All the best of the day’s celebrity dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom.

Rosanna Davison has stated that her father encouraged her to pose nude for Playboy. The former Miss World was speaking on Angela Scanlon’s new programme Full Frontal, set to air on RTE 2 this week, about her experience posing nude for Playboy in 2012.

The model told Scanlon that her father was not only okay with the whole thing, but actually encouraged her to go through with it, telling her that she was “not going to be young forever”.

He was really encouraging and he just said, ‘Look at all the women who’ve done it before you… you should be really proud’.

Thankfully, Davison clarified that de Burgh has not seen the photos to the best of her knowledge.

Phew. (Herald)

Maggie Smith is apparently closer to her Downton Abbey character than you might think. A source tells Heat Magazine that Smith teased her co-star Richard E. Grant on set and invented a rather biting nickname for him – Richard E. Can’t.

Oh damn, Richard E. Grant! You just got served by Dame Maggie Smith!

A source told Heat Magazine that the nickname stems from when Grant and Smith starred alongside one another in a stage producton of The Importance of Being Earnest. Smith brought it back to life after she allegedly caught Grant falling asleep during filming.

Never change, Maggie. (Heat)
